In the light of what has probably been the biggest scandal to hit the bodybuilding industry in a while, the saga has continued to take unpredictable twists. Following the news of Kai Greene being banned from competing at this year’s Mr Olympia, worldly renowned and highly respected Mr. Olympia judge Lee Thompson has followed suit and has proceeded to cut all ties with the IFBB. He has now taken it upon himself to bring in a new federation, that will allow competitors from IFBB, and WBFF (amongst other federations), to come together and compete.
As the physique industry and its associated subsidiaries progress further into the 21st century, there have been differences as to how to move forward in a PROGRESSIVE and EVOLUTIONARY manner. Sooner than I would have anticipated, the demands of the athletes, the fans, the sponsors and the future have come calling. I, the #NPCTexas and the #Nspire COMMUNITY are ready to answer that call.
Our COMMUNITY vision; to create a SHARED ECONOMY by rewarding the athletes and to provide the TRANSPARENCY of the process by which they COMPETE. It is the ATHLETES who sacrifice so much to make this business and lifestyle so great. Together, we UNITE to create our own RULES by which we will LIVE in a state of UTOPIA.
I, my wife Jennifer Thompson, our entire Thompson Muscle Contest and Nspire Physique Championship Amateur/Pro League – wish the very best in their pursuit of EXCELLENCE to all the amazing athletes taking to the stage this weekend in Las Vegas, NV. And to those athletes around the GLOBE, we WELCOME you to our NPC Global League.
IT’S HOW WE LIVE.
Na ja was soll man sagen? Heute strebt (fast) alles nach Gewinnmaximierung, der Sport und die Athleten/-innen sind nur noch Mittel zum Zweck. Ohne Moos nix los, wovon will man die Athleten und den ganzen Kommerzzirkus bezahlen etc.? Was einst Joe`s Idee war, ist heut mehr und mehr zur Farce verkommen. Ich wünsche dem Judge alles erdenklich Gute und das er ähnlich wie beim FBB ein oder zwei Leute findet, die die ausreichenden Mittel haben, diese Idee zu stützen. Und vor allem genug (berühmte) Athleten die sich diesem neuen Kurs anschließen.

Wenn einer genug Kapital und Einfluss hatte, dann Vince McMahon, und selbst der hat es damals nicht auf die Kette bekommen, einen neuen, großen Verband zu initiieren.
Trotzdem eine interessante Entwicklung.
